The lead Brownsville Fire Investigator is calling a fire that burned off of Price Rd. in the early morning hours, Tuesday, a suspicious fire.

At this time he can't confirm arson just yet, he’ll have to wait until samples taken from the scene are examined at the crime lab, before making his final determination.

An arson dog assisted in the investigation efforts helping to lead authorities to where the fire may have ignited. Officials say it was in a back room of the multi-business structure that the fire started.

Once again, investigators are leaning towards foul play, if you have any information on this mysterious blaze; contact Brownsville Crime Stoppers at 546-TIPS.
